Is there anything Rihanna can't do? In lew of promoting her latest Fenty Beauty products, the singer motivated Howard University students that have been protesting against inequity with the help of her music.
Students Protest Against Injustice
Recently, the college made headlines after it was revealed that employees stole about $1 million from the university's financial aid.
Of course, the students were outraged, which eventually led them to protest against the matter.
On Thursday, March 29, Riri herself decided to retweet the video of the group of students as they demonstrated in response to the incident. Although it was just like any other protest, what made it interesting is that the group chose the 30-year-old's single, "Bitch Better Have My Money" as their anthem.
Social media users immediately pointed out that the song couldn't be more fitting for the cause.
In the video, the students could be heard chanting the lyrics to Riri's song as they throw their hands up and stand in the school's administrative building.

On Wednesday, March 28, Howard University's President, Wayne Frederick released a statement revealing that the school found about the allegations in December 2016, but the students just learned the news about the incident earlier this week.
Frederick also stated that the situation was investigated and those involved were fired last year.
